That's why people used hidden frames (especially iframes)... useful for
debugging too because you could see the content before it was

True, but I think XMLHttpRequest just makes it cleaner... I actually like to
use XMLHttpRequest and IFrames, interchangeably or together, depending on
the usage... point being is that applications like data entry suck without
using one/theother/both on the web (well, unless you want an ActiveX,
Applet, etc. which is a different discussion altogether).
